Emu Point, one of Australia's most beautiful coastal locations, is surrounded by water on three sides.
It has large expanses of grass and peppermint trees which generate an atmosphere of peace and serenity, and enable one to truly relax.
Emu Point is home to several of Albany's safest swimming beaches, providing ideal swimming conditions for children and non-swimmers, as well as the seasoned water babies.
Like fishing? This is an ideal spot with many excellent fishing locations, popular with both locals and tourists.
The coastal heath is home to a wide variety of native birds so enjoy a morning or evening stroll observing the birds.
Tennis, lawn bowls and golf facilities are within easy waking distance, a cycleway going all the way to town passes the front door. The harbour is ideal for conoeing.
Vacswim swimming lessons are held at Emu Point throughout January.
There really is no need for a car, except for the weekly foodshop or to go further afield and explore some of Albany's beautiful surrounding areas.
You will never want to leave.
